Leighlin Parish will mark and celebrate the following occasions during 2020.
1. The 200th anniversary of the St. Fintan’s Church, Ballinabranna on Sunday 16th February with Mass at 2pm.
2. The 250th anniversary of St. Lazerian’s Church, Leighlinbridge on Sunday the 19th April with Mass at 11am.
Bishop Denis Nulty will be celebrant at both Masses. If anyone has old memorabilia or photographs or any material relating to our Parish history the organising committee would be grateful to see them or copy them to put together a collection of our past. All material handed in will be kept safe and given back to the donor. There is an open meeting in the Old School Hall in Ballinabranna on Wednesday, 4th December at 7.30pm to begin to organise the Ballinabranna celebration. We do hope for a good turn out and to get as many people involved as possible.
